or not our political system, whether the leaders can get together, whether they can solve big problems or are they just going to kick the can? if you look at the statements of the rating agencies who have questioned the fiscal soundness of this country, it's about our political system, not being willing or able, seemingly, to take on big tasks. >> the president may be confident about a larger plan but senate minority leader mitch mcconnell, one of the key lawmakers involved in negotiations says he thinks a $4 trillion deal is off the table. >> everything they've told me and the speaker is that to get a big package would require big tax increases in the middle of the economic situation that's extraordinarily difficult with 9.2% unemployment. it's a terrible idea. it's a job-killer. >> after last night's white house meeting, house minority leader nancy pelosi said democrats are still hopeful for a large bipartisan agreement as long as it does not do harm to the middle class. and aides to john boehner says the speaker now believes the cuts outlined by vice president biden's bipartisan gro
. if a crisis can be averted. if democrats and republicans can come to an agreement on the big fight that has been frankly smothering american politics for weeks now. president obama announced earlier today that he wants to see a deal done by tomorrow on the big debt ceiling fight that has consumed every bit of oxygen in d.c. for the last few months. the president saying tonight that congressional leaders are on the clock. they have 24 to 36 hours to get a deal done. as planning a vote that the u.s. government should not default on our debt and shut down comes down to the wire, we are inching close enough to the edge here that two of the world's major credit rating agencies have warned that our national credit rating may be downgraded as a result of this standoff. the day that the u.s. would actually hit the debt ceiling and start going into default and shutting down is august 2. but this does not mean that we have until august 2 before we lose our national credit rating. that could just happen right now. because of the uncertainty and because of how long it is taking to get this done. right

now is the moment to rise above that cynicism and show the american people that we can still do big things and so he will make the case to congressional leaders that we must reject the politics of least resistance and take on this critical challenge. joining us now is the senate's top republican who will be a key participant in today's talks. senator mitch mcconnell. welcome back to "fox news sunday." >> glad to be here. >> let's start with what happened and from your perspective, where do things stand now ahead of this meeting tonight at the white house. >> well, unfortunately, as the speaker said, they are insisting on the white house and congressional democrats, insisting on really big tax increases as a condition to do anything on the spending side. bret, we believe the president was right back in december when he signed a two-year extension of the current tax rates of raising taxes in the middle of this economic situation we're in is a terrible idea. i mean, just look at the unemployment figures last friday. all the arguments the president used in december still work today. th
, though, but not always. every once in a while, big american political change comes not from washington, but from the states. and today is one of those days. in the 1973, the supreme court said states could no longer ban abortions. today, one state just about did anyway. just over two years ago, a doctor named george tiller was murdered by an anti-abortion extremist. he shot dr. tiller in the head at dr. tiller's church in wichita. killed him instantly. since then, the late doctor's clinic in central kansas has been closed. the first doctor who said she would start providing abortion services again in that part of the state, she has been hounded by anti-abortion protesters. they have protested outside her family practice in wichita. they have protested outside her home. she's been targeted by wanted poster style emails, wanted posters calling her a mass murderer. she also got a letter telling her one day there would be a bomb under her car, that the anti-abortion activists would do anything they could to stop her. so she has not been able to open a practice providing abortions in wichit
this big, grand compromise, the president and and congressional leaders need to negotiate to raise that limit. they're e manding 2 trillion in spending cuts be made to give the president the increase he wants and democrats demanding any deal to cut spending like that has to include an increase in tax revenue. the big question, going into tonight's meeting is whether a smaller deficit reduction n dea is possible. both sides are saying it can be done. failure to do it would lead to economic meltdown. >> jon, thank you very much. joining me to discuss the road ahead is the white house chief of staff bill daley. thank you very much for joining us. you've heard what jon said. you've seen what speaker boehner has done last night. what's your reaction to the deal being pulled right now? >> it's very unfortunate the speaker made the comments he has. the president is committtt to solving this deficit possible for the future of america. he's looking forward to the meeting to play out his case. he's saying, it is time now to make the tough decisions. in this town, generally they kick the can.

" will be bittersweet will be sure, a big celebration marked by big questions of what's ahead. >> bob, thanks. also with us is charles bolden, nasa administrator. >> good to be with you. >> there's a lot of criticism, including john glenn, by ending the program the way it's being ended without a backup plan this is ignoring a cardinal rule at nasa, saying there should be something else ready to go. how do you respond? >> we spent seven years with a well organized transition plan for phasing out shuttle and moving on to the next era. we're excited about what president obama is allowing us to do, working hard with the commercial entities, we hope to fly our first commercial crew, cargo missions early next year, they will be american made rockets flying cargo to the international space station and starting to work with commercial entities, hope to release a request for proposal on commercial contracts to take crew to orbit, maybe three years after we let the contract, we'll have a capability. >> many do see this and a number of astronauts have spoken over the last few weeks have said it seems like u.s

house correspondent, and from cnn money. go big or go home. what is the republican push back? >> reporter: we're going to be finding out very shortly because house speaker john boehner will take to the cameras at 1:30 eastern essentially in the rebuttal to the news conference from the president earlier today. but the push back for republicans has been tax increases. you have republicans who have insisted on no tax increases, and democrats that insisted if there will be spending cuts, to achieve trillions of dollars in deficit savings. they don't want to abandon -- if there are going to be cuts to programs that are huge, they want to be able to say we pushed for sacrifices from wealthy americans and corporations. they are trying to strike kind of a just right agreement. because on one hand, you have a lot of republicans, and many of them who were swept into power in the last election saying we're going to cut spending and make government smaller, so the idea of tax increases, and certainly this is something a lot of them literally pledged they will not do, randi, it would forc
economic soundness to this country. that take as big deal. a lot of pain. democrats are upset the president talked about pain on their side of the ail and republicans are saying no way will we give tax relief to middle income americans. they want to continue tax relief to the wealthy. everyone agrees a number around $4 trillion will make a serious debt on our deficit. it will send a statement to the world that the u.s. has gotten ahold of their fiscal problems and they are moving forward. it will give confidence to the american people that we can move forward to bring economic soundness. that's the president's commitment. >> 6:00 on the east coast. welcome to "morning joe." look at that nice live look at times square. joe is looking spify today. he went shopping. it is monday, july 11th. >> i don't know what that means. >> we have msnbc -- well, yes. this is unusual. we have msnbc contributor mike barnicle, john heilemann. what's so funny? >> yeah, what's so funny? i don't get it. he's back. >> we can't get him to leave. we have "morning joe" economic analyst steve rattner and in washington
much progress towards getting a deal done. so we'll have to see if anything big came out of this meeting. what we can tell you is the backdrop is dwindling hope for getting a big deal done. as you said, president obama was pushing for a big deal, especially at the end of last week. somewhere in the neighborhood of $4 trillion in deficit reductions over the next ten year. it looked like at the end of last week, at least, speaker boehner was trying to get on that same page. it would have involved coming to the table over entitlement reforms, ib vochled republicans coming to the table over rolling back tax credits for wealthy americans and big corporation, but then over the weekend, speaker bain boehner wouldn't be able to support a big deal. they are discussing as you said a deal half the size. somewhere in the neighborhood of $2 trillion to $3 trillion in cuts. we expect eric cantor to have come to this meeting with their proposal. we expect that's what they were discussing during this meeting. we'll let you know exactly what happened once we find out. the president earlie
and cut the loop holes that big corporations get and middle class get. john boehner said he doesn't have the vote to pass the deal that includes tax hikings. >> the president wanting the public to know that he is pushing that don't have the support to pass. >> republicans in the house want tax increases off of the table. the reason that the u.s. has a debt problem is not because americans are not paying enough to taxes but washington spends too much. >> the situation is gotten worse. in the first two years in office. discretionary spending sky rocketed 84 percent including the failed stim tim with the spending reaching 25 percent of the nation's out put. we haven't seen spending that live since world war ii. >> they intend to require the government to cap spending and set a higher thres hold of votes needed to raise taxes. china issued a warning to the white house. china said that meeting could harm the relations between the two count reese. the president said he didn't support tibetian independence but supports the protection and culture of the people. fox news is america's election hea
14% in taxes and corporations pay 0%, and you raise more, you can have us a big deal here. >> they're still drawing lines in the sand that seem insurmountable with weeks to go before the august 2 deadline, congressional leaders are heading back to the white house today for yet another meeting to reach a deal on raising the country's debt ceiling. officials familiar with the negotiations say majority leader eric cantor dominated yesterday's meeting. cantor laid out what was agreed upon in the deficit reduction talks led by vice president biden, specifically $2 trillion in cuts in the next decade. the figure includes $1 trillion in discretionary spending. $200 billion in medicare and medicaid. and $200 billion to $300 billion on saved interest in the debt. >> so the military -- the military, i guess, comes in in the mandatory discretionary spending. >> military. >> sources familiar with the talks add that after the presentation president obama said the two sides might be able to reach consensus on roughly $1 pp 7 trillion. but there are still some issues to resolve. at one point in t
to ask the big oil companies to give up one dime not one dime of their $4 billion annual subsidy. they have refused to ask big corporations to give up one dime in their corporate loopholes. what we are negotiating with is a group of people who won't compromise. a group of people who have said we want the middle class to pay more taxes so that big corporations can pay less. we want seniors to lose their medicare so that big oil companies can continue to foost on their subdis. that's what the problem is. >> the case that republicans have taken a hard line on talks, at the same time democrats are taking what sounds like a hard line on entitlements. let me read a statement from leader pelosi that says we continue to oppose benefit cuts in social security and medicare. these pillars should not be used a as piggy bank to subsidize tax cuts for the wealthy. are democrats not just as guilty of failing to compromise as republicans are in this case? >> no, absolutely not. what we have said and i think most americans would agree with this is the middle class and seniors should not be asked
the impact. but i'm wondering, two of the candidates will be coming out after this big debate here in washington. does that give an advantage or a disadvantage or is it unclear based on the outcome? >> well, it's unclear based on the outcome certainly. the congresswoman and the congressman have both been very strong in their opposition. >> no compromise. right? >> that will appeal to many people in the base of the party. and i think what you've heard from some of the other candidates is somewhat more equivocal position. though john huntsman this week came out strongly for the boehner plan and said it was the only plan going and that the republicans and everybody ought to get behind it. congresswoman bachmann in particular, i think, has staked out that kind of tea party position. and she'll probably benefit from that. i think the other candidates are trying to get a piece of that, but try to go more broadly. >> i think bachmann and to a certain extent paul also risk some pleasure of backlash, or could in their don't raise the ceiling at all and their positions, playing down is a pot

and increase the nations borrowing limit. >> everything they have told me and the speaker is to get a big package would require big tax increases in the middle of an economic situation extraordinarily difficult 9.2% unemployment. it is a job killer. >> we need to do something very big, substantial to bring long term debt down overtime we have to do that in a way that is good for the economy. >> reporter: of course there is a difference in opinion what is exactly good for the economy, house speaker john boehner said look the republicans are not going to agree on any package that includes any increases in taxes therefore the republican package is $2 trillion where as the deal the president has been pushing is a $4 trillion deal we should learn more at the press conference scheduled here at the white house 11:00 a.m. >>> three small planes in three separate incidents had to be intercepted by fighter jets this weekend each plane flew too close to camp david. the first around noon saturday another later that night the third happened late yesterday morning in every case the planes landed withou

heated yesterday between obama and eric cantor. while they bicker, the big three credit rating agencies are warning the aaa bond status could be at risk. the debt ceiling deadline, as you may know, is august 2nd, but the president set tomorrow for the deadline to see if a grand bargain is possible, if not a bare bones bargain. if not, payments to critters, bill payments, you name it, there is not enough income to cover all that. every month we come up $125 billion short. if we cannot borrow to bridge the cap, 40% of the monthly obligations could not be paid, and that could include social security checks due to go out on august 3rd. the stakes we just laid out are monumental, so both sides have to give ground and risk their jobs for the good of the country. what is so hard about that, right? joining me with their insights on conflict resolution are cnn contributor, pete dominic, and family law attorney, mrs. winestein. what does it take for two entrenched parties to agree on a deal that both need? >> well, you know, the obvious is that you take the emotion out of the room and you try to
that would have reduced spending by $4 trillion over the next decade. but if mr. boehner wanted to do a big deal, the majority leader eric cantor threw cold water all over it saying that the congressional republicans would reject any revenue increases as part of the deal. as for the president, he said that he is willing to take political hits from his own party, but not at the expense of struggling americans. >> i am prepared to take on significant heat from my party to get something done. i expect the other side should be willing to do the same thing if we are going to actually solve the problem, there are finite number of ways to do it. if you don't have revenues, it means you are putting more of a burden on the people who can least afford it. that's not fair. >> nbc's kristen welker is live at the white house. kristen, the president spoke about his willingness to take in his words significant heat from his own party in reaching a compromise, and he was clearly suggesting that the republicans must do the same, but will they? >> well, it is an interesting question at this point the two sid

yesterday. then this morning is was a big question. as you see people heading in to catch the 7:10 vote is there will be no strike but it did take us awhile to get here. >> you don't see signs up, so i guess we're supposed to work. >> you didn't know anything about a strike? >> no. >> reporter: that man was our first indication that the strike wouldn't happen at all. he belongs to the inlandboatmen's union, the union that was supposed to go on strike. he showed up for work this morning. so did the other employees. so just after 5 service went ahead as scheduled. that was the first gate to open and there were a handful of passengers. >> i was in the car on the way to the city. i was just about to drive when i heard. >> reporter: how much easier is it for you get on the boat? >> much, coffee, paper. >> reporter: two boats left. there was a lot of confusion. we heard from the district. they said the union didn't give them a head's up. the union said they did tell the district yesterday morning about the possibility of a strike and told them last night this was called off. taking a live loo
was always striving for a big deal. from the speaker's perspective, the white house at the last minute from their view moved the goal posts. they -- what it sounds like, not only comes to some agreement on a framework, but they were talking real details on some of these proposals, having to do with cuts and spending cuts and medicare and enconstitutitlemen all that. after this agreement that they have come to -- it had reached, they say the white house moved the goal posts. and in their view, speaker bane her to step back, take stock of the situation and really look at the calendar very seriously. as he said had, to do something because the white house's vision was not in line with that of congress. and that's why speaker boehner has now made this very aggressive move saying he's now just working with congress on this. >> jessica, we're running very tight on time tonight. i want to get through a lot fast. is there a sense when you look at the numbers that both sides talk about, even if you take their conflicting versions of what happened, i had the sense they were both talking about really
higher. the ftse and the dax are both down. sony is reporting big losses. let's go to kyung lah, live in tokyo. good morning, kyung. >> reporter: good morning, ali. it's not just sony but it is a bad day in a lot of boardrooms and many of the electronics companies here in japan. we saw a lot of reporting of the quarter from april to june. sony posted a loss of 191 million u.s. dollars. panasonic, down 390 million. sharp down 630 million and nintendo says they lost in that quarter 327 million u.s. dollars. why? well, partially because of the march 11th earthquake. they are still trying to recover from the poor sales and the supply problems. the other theme we keep seeing over and over again from these electronics companies is the currency problem. the u.s. dollar is sinking. sinking very rapidly in these last six weeks. u.s. manufacturers, just like japanese manufacturers all operate on the u.s. dollar. and so when japanese manufacturers then have to repatriate these funds here, they lose if the dollar is sinking and the yen is rising. what is pushing the dollar down is all of that u.s

're in for another deep rough patch, i think, they are getting very nervous about re-election. and, the big winner out of a grand bargain, would have absolutely been president obama, because, the not only would things have hopefully improved but he also could take credit for making a really big grown-up decision. going forward, though, you know, in two years, or actually, in one year, now, next year, after the election, it is hard for me to see how republicans will not actually be in a better position, even if they don't win the white house, there is a good chance they'll win the senate and almost certainly still control the house and i think republicans will be in a tremendously strong position, to get the kind of deal that speaker boehner went in there looking for, but clearly was not going to get from the white house. >> jamie: charlie, seems like those dismal job numbers may have changed the imperative for the house white house. how close are both sides to accepting the proposal that vice presidented by eb was able to negotiate and is that all we need? will it get us where we need to be with r
